Looking for 8.1 Users with Dialup or DSL Modems

If you’re using PC-BSD 8.1 and have a dialup or DSL modem, please review the Advanced Network Settings and PPPoE page of the PC-BSD Handbook as I don’t have access to a modem to test the settings. Please let us know if the device names are correct, if any required fields are missing, or if any of the text is unclear or needs more explanation. You can leave a comment here or make a wiki account and either start a discussion on the page’s Discussion tab or edit the page directly (we’ll see your edits).

    In setting up PPPoE, ( to set up an internet service provider for Dialup ) I can’t seem to find the field to enter the server telephone number to dial in.
    Just wanted to let you know in case I just can’t find it, or, it has not been put in yet.

      That section is on my to-do list to be updated as the networking changes in 9.0 are being MFC’d to 8.2. The new screenshot is now up at It still does not have a spot to enter the phone number so I’ll bring that up on the testing mailing list. Thanks!
